It is a disgrace, given all that political theorists have to teach, that there has been such enthusiasm for “democracy” and multi-party elections, in isolation of the other pre-requisites for liberty……With the rise of dictators (Chavez), kleptocrats (Putin), and Islamocrats by the ballot box, democracy has been earning a justifiably bad reputation.
